High Holy Days

High Holy Days at Temple 2023/5784

Rabbis Lisa J. Grushcow, D. Phil., and Lillian Kowalski, RJE
Joseph Kaiser, Cantorial Soloist, and Alexandra Asher, Interim Music Director

This High Holy Day Season, we welcome you to join us in our Sanctuary – or connect from home.

Services will be hybrid and will be accessible both in person and online. If your situation permits, we encourage you to experience the beauty of our services in our Temple home, and the joy of coming together as a community in person. But whatever you decide, rest assured that Temple is here for you, and your presence and participation matter. Please be sure to read Temple communications in the fall for any updates.

L’shanah tovah tikateivu v’techateimu – may we be written and sealed for a good year.

To reserve tickets, please contact Rosie Zizek at rosie@templemontreal.ca.
